Summer is almost here, and that means amazing concert series are about to kick off, especially in and around New York City. The Citi Concert Series on Today is getting the ball rolling on May 9 with former One Direction member Harry Styles. 

According to Billboard, Style's Tuesday morning performance at Rockefeller Plaza will be the second solo performance he's ever given in his singing career. Considering he just released his new single, and he's got a tour in place for this fall, Styles is the perfect choice for the summer series opener. 

And, needless to say, his fans are pumped to see him.
